Sisters of Mercy Campus: Burlingame, California

Planning for the Future

Over the past few years, a committee of Sisters and staff have been meeting to begin planning for the future of the campus. Sisters of Mercy desire to create a future for the campus that honors the legacy, ministries, and the sacredness of the grounds for future generations. Mercy’s planning includes consideration of how changes on the property may affect campus neighbors. The Committee also is committed to working with the City of Burlingame to ensure that any development that takes place will complement the neighborhood.

Another key component of Mercy’s planning for the future rests in its commitment to sustainability and care for the earth. Sisters consider the Burlingame campus as sacred ground and hope to maintain the natural beauty of the grounds for future generations.
Mercy is still in its early stages of planning for the future. Once we have more defined ideas, we will hold meetings with neighbors to update them on the planning. This site also will be updated frequently with current planning information.
